By 2005 Yoshizawa was starring in many of the typical genres of Japanese porn: the maid who can't refuse orders and serves her master and his sons (Being Obedient is a Pleasure of a Maid), the virginal-seeming teacher who has wild sex on the weekends and is eventually raped by fellow teachers and students (Akiho Yoshizawa in Female Teacher Hunt) and a lewd stewardess who services both pilots and terrorists (Welcome to Max Airline!
